Recent participation in some photography forums has piqued an interest in doing a Project 365. Photography has been a hobby on and off for over 40 years and in the last 18 months my interest has intensified. So I've decided to jump in, give it a shot (no pun intended) and see if I can shoot every day for a year.

My expectations for this project are that it will provide motivation to expand my skills both behind the camera and in post-processing and provide a vehicle for experimentation. My photog pal Doug has been a great mentor, so I want to publicly say thanks; this is your fault (kidding of course).

It is going to be a learning experience, so any and all comments, critiques and encouraging words are welcome.

Thanks for viewing.

Physiogram 1

3/7/10 - Day 79
There is a great UK digital SLR photography magazine that sometimes describes different "projects."  In this one, I suspended a small light from a thread in a dark room and took long exposures while the suspended light rotated.   Every attempt created a different pattern.  For some additional images, go to this Smugmug gallery.  I plan to definitely explore this technique further.


  1. Well done! All of my attempts at light painting look like a child's scribble -- this is beautiful!

  2. Ms Mgt - if you want to send me your email address, I'd be happy to scan the article and send it to you. This one is pretty basic - in the future, I plan to experiment with colored gels, different lenses, different light sources, etc.

    Posting your email address could lead to spam, so if you subscribe to this blog instead, I'll pick up the address and send you the article.


  3. Also, if you're interested in some additional images, I've posted them at http://jeffm211.smugmug.com/Collections/Physiograms

  4. that's sweet! I'll have to give that a go. if you wind up scanning the article send it my way. patglennon at gmail dot com
